This is Ms. Young's first book in the adult romance area and it is a huge winner in my opinion. HOT, and addictive do not often go together but this book is impossible to put down. To recap the story of an American girl with a background of heartbreak falling in love with a Scottish business tycoon just doesn't do the writing justice.
The story is not that out of the ordinary, it is the character discription that makes this book so well written. Jocelyn Butler is an author and is an island to herself and lets no one in. To watch her gain strength and finally become a loving girlfriend to Braden and to his sister and her roomate Ellie, is very touching. Right up to the last word of the Epologue she is growing and learning to love, trust and laugh.
Braden is a playboy of the first order but he too has some heartbreaking tales to tell of his past. He is gorgeous, rich, aloof and very intuitive. The characters are realistic, Hot and loveable. The humour in the book is quick witted and typically Scottish and dry. It sneeks up on you. There are many lines I would love to quote, to me a sign of a good writter.
I would reccommend this book to anyone who loves to cheer for the underdog. Joss' path to happiness was not an easy one and she slips many a time. Braden never gives up and supports her in his way even when she doesn't realize it.
